First of all, I know how to fix this in the timeline. What I want to know is if there is a way to rotate a source media file without putting it on the timeline, rotating it and rerendering.
In the heat of things when you're filming, sometimes there's just no time to make sure the phone is filming in the right orientation. I end up with clips that I filmed as landscape format being tagged as portrait format, and vice versa.
I can apply a transform effect to the source clip to rotate it, and it looks correct if I put it on the timeline. But the source monitor aspect ratio does not change. This makes it very tedious to edit these clips and find the sections I want.
Is there a way to rotate AND retag the footage somehow so the aspect ratio will be correct in the source monitor?
